I Told You So

Remember back in August I told you about the Army's killer robot thingy? Well, the world moved one step closer to the Terminator style future I mentioned in that post.

Apparently the Oerlikon GDF-005 anti-aircraft gun robot went berserk and killed 9 members of the South African National Defense Force before it was finally shut down.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Robots don't like us.


  1. OMG.

    That is so totally out of Robocop its scary.

    Did you see that story the other day about people marrying robots? I will send it to you.

  2. woah! i knew it would happen. just wait til the ipods revolt and fry everyone's brains.
    kitty & jeff, I hope to see you tonight?

  3. Where's Neo when you need him?

  4. Jeff, thank you for bringing up this important topic of robots with bloodlust. Just recently, I read a story about the makers of Roomba, the seemingly friendly vaccuum robot, developing a new killer roomba with the ability to kill dozens if not several dozens of people. And it wasn't in the Weekly World News (my normal source for news), it was on the Internet! Here's a link:

  5. That picture is so bizarre. The machine looks like a bunch of tires with a gun on top of it.

  6. See...

    I have been telling people to get Robot Insurance.
